Eat Me. Barefoot Barista, Palm Beach

It was lunchtime at work last week and I was inspired to take a trip down to Palm Beach from my office in Burleigh. I was catching up with a beautiful friend of mine who is a photographer, and aside from having wonderful chats, she gives me a crash course on my SLR camera each time I see her [bonus!].

We had a bite at Barefoot Barista just off the Gold Coast Highway which boasts some funky, log-cabin chic decor and delish food to boot. Tables and chairs are available street side and also in a little courtyard out the back which has a lovely rainforest-y vibe. The service is friendly and the food is fairly prompt making it the perfect place for lunching when you've got an hour to burn.

I ordered the vegetarian burger which listed haloumi, mushrooms and onion relish as the main ingredients. Yum! It certainly lived up to my expectations although beware the mess - this is not something to order on a first date because you're not going to look glamorous as you open wide and let the juice run down your fingers. Definitely friend-catch-up-burger material. On the menu are a variety of other burgers and salads which have classic and innovative flavour combinations. There's also a very tempting sweets cabinet. 4/5
